Re: Builing a PC help is needed.
Well with your budget I suggest going with AMD cpu/mobo, perhaps something along the lines of a Phenom II X4 955 b.e., with whatever combo deal you can get it with a decent compatible motherboard. RAM I suggest you buy 4GB DDR3 1600MHz RAM, should be enough and if you find you need more (which I doubt you will) you can always order more in the future. What Operating System you running?
